Entrepreneurship: New venture creation
You will learn how to create, develop and exploit business opportunities by starting up and managing new ventures.

In addition, you will be part of our mentorship programme where you are matched with an experienced mentor.
Our pedagogy is based on the belief that you need the practice to learn. However, you also need to reflect on your practice and learn from available theories in the field.

The Master’s programme in Entrepreneurship and Innovation has an excellent employer reputation. A majority of our graduates are working in a leading role at established companies or managing their own businesses and start-ups, involved in business development and entrepreneurship.
The programme is designed to provide the tools necessary for starting new independent businesses or to work in advisory roles to new venture start-ups. It also gives graduates practical experience in research commercialisation, as well as tools to proactively work in projects in highly uncertain or risky market environments.
The new competitive landscape makes it essential for existing companies to renew and develop. Knowledge of entrepreneurship and innovation processes, in general, is thus a valuable asset if you aim for a career in this field. The knowledge and skills that follow from the experience and learning from the programme are much sought after by a wide range of organisations.
